In tonight’s Monday Night Football tilt, Drew Brees leads the New Orleans Saints against his former team for (likely) the final time in his career.

The Saints look to string together a second straight win after two consecutive losses in Weeks 2 & 3. They will have to do it without Michael Thomas, who won’t suit up for the Saints for the fourth straight week. His first three inactive designations were due to injury, but tonight’s inactive designation reportedly stems from an altercation at practice with CB C.J. Gardner-Johnson.

The Chargers look to hand the Saints their second MNF loss this season behind rookie Justin Herbert, who was officially named the starting QB moving forward for the Chargers earlier this week.

Tonight’s game can be seen on ESPN. Who do y’all got winning this game? Chargers or Saints? Sound off in the comments section below. Head over to our sister sites to gain a better insight into the two teams playing tonight.
